Simple Ways to Improve Your Shooting Skills

Hunting in South CarolinaBefore you go hunting, it is a smart idea to learn more about shooting a gun. We have put together some tips to help you improve your skills:

  • Take Your Time – When firing a gun, it is essential to be able to shoot when the timing is right. That said, no one starts shooting fast. It is crucial that you take your time and make sure you are shooting with accuracy than speed. Firing too quickly may mean that you miss your target and scare any game in the area away.
  • Practice Dry Firing – Dry firing means working with your gun without any ammo in it. Practicing with your gun gives you a chance to get used to your gun and how it feels as you are using it. Try dry firing at a target and always make sure that there is no ammunition in your gun before practice.
  • Never Push Yourself – Pushing yourself is fine when you are trying to finish a marathon, put pushing yourself with a gun never improves your habit. In fact, you will begin to learn bad habits when you practice shooting while you are tired or just not up to the task.

Making Your Next Deer Hunt a Good One

Guided Hunting Trips

The team at the Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge knows what it takes to have a good hunt. As providers of unique guided hunting trips in South Carolina, we know what to look for when taking you out on the hunt. Here are a few tips you can take into mind when hunting:

  • Know the Land – One of the best things you can do is getting familiar with the land before you start hunting. With this knowledge, you will know where deer like to hang out, as well as hiding spots. When you are out on one of our guided trips, you will be hunting with a guide that knows our land like the back of their hand.
  • Walk Slowly – Making noise as you walk through the forest is a mistake that many hunters do not think about until they find themselves rushing to get to their blind. Be mindful of the ground and tread lightly at all times.
  • Mask Your Scent – We have said it before, but it always bears repeating: cover up your scent. Deodorants, shampoos, aftershave, and laundry detergents have strong smells and deer will stay away when they smell them.
